The fight against bullying continues in Rochester. One group has taken matters into their own hands while organizing an anti-bullying walk.
Dozens of people from the East Rochester Youth Activity Center took a stand against bullying Tuesday. They hope to spread awareness one step at a time.
Their anti-bullying message could be seen and heard at Edmund Lyon Park. This walk is possible thanks to a grant from "Youth as Resources."
The goal is to spread awareness against bullying. It's an issue they deal with a lot at the East Rochester Youth Activity Center.
"I hope that people are going to come away with some sort of sense that bullying is bad and that it is an epidemic in our town and just hoping that they may want to teach their kids, don't do it, or just come away with something," said Chelsea Seward, Supervisor of Easter Rochester Youth Activity Center.
"I was bullied when I was about seven or six because I was really huge, and it was very offensive at times. I broke down in tears at times. It got really harsh," said Eugene Schlesing of the East Rochester Youth Activity Center.
This is the second part of the anti-bullying grant. The first part was a carnival booth, set up by East Rochester Youth Activity Center, to help spread awareness.
